Nelson Mandela

During his law studies at the University of Witwatersrand, Mandela became involved in the movement against racial discrimination in apartheid South Africa. He built strong relations with black and white activists; in 1944 he joined the African National Congress. In 1962 Mandela was arrested, charged with treason and later, in 1964, sentenced to life imprisonment. After serving 27 years of his sentence, he entered negotiations which successfully ended apartheid. In 1994 he became the first black president of South Africa..
